Note N15Margaret Shearer divorced Elijah Myers and remarried Arnold Riley, primarily based on POB of Margaret Riley's parents. Divorce laws in the 1800s generally awarded custody of children to the father regardless of the reason for the divorce.
"A Twentieth Century History of Berrien Co," (1906) pp. 260-1:
The following children of Eli Shearer are now living. Mrs. A. J. Penland, Mrs. Margaret Arnold, Daniel, and Mrs. Elizabeth Stevens.
This suggests that Margaret Shearer married a Mr. Arnold after Elijah Myers's death. No record of Elijah's death can be found. A Berrien Co. marriage record lists Margaret N. Shearer marrying W. R. Arnold Dec. 25, 1862. Margaret Shearer married Elijah Myers on April 2, 1862 and he is listed in the 1870 census. The 1870 census lists a Charles (25, IN) and Margaret (21, IN) in Royalton twp. (p. 23/380, res. 183, next door to Ezra Boswell).
